Buyers and Multiple Offers
by David Ursino
Throughout the year, we’ve had a really strong seller’s market. There hasn’t been a lot of inventory and interest rates have been really low creating a lot of demand. That’s created a lot of multiple offers.
Often times, the listing agent will set a specific date for the offers to come in for a property and there’s been so much interest in the property obviously from the low interest rates and the low inventory, that all of a sudden there’s more than one offer on the property. It’s common to see 4-6 offers on a property being sold as long as it’s priced well and it’s well marketed. Obviously that’s not the greatest experience for a buyer.
However, if you go in with a capable agent and you have a strong plan, you work with your agent to figure out the value of the property and set your maximum limit that you’re willing to pay for the home and don’t go above that. That way you don’t get caught up in the emotional circumstances that get involved with multiple offers. But success can be had when working through multiple offers as long as you’re doing it with a capable agent; someone who’s diligent, someone that looks after you and he/she’s making sure that you’re making a logical decision.
